    India's Frontier Railways. The Last Train in Nepal.

    Episode two of three (I haven't seen episode one yet). I don't watch much television, but I really enjoyed this program and doubt anyone but the BBC could produce this. Fascinating. :thumb: LINK.

    Ghost train?

    Driving home from Derby on the M1 today I passed a train (on a low loader). There was a support van just behind the transporter with an electronic roof display showing "Paranormal load". The train didn't look that spooky.
